29" / 27.5plus
TWENTY NINE / TWENTY SEVEN PLUS
At Muru we love the 29" wheelsize. It's a great size for touring, trail riding, bikepacking or just plain adventuring. We currently offer two options for you to get your 29" fix. (depending on your tastes) Each frame has unique features and each has it's own special reason for being in our range. So let's look at them.
The Innamincka is designed around a flat or Jones style handlebar. (it's more of a traditional mountain bike style)
While the BNT shares much of it's DNA with the Innamincka, it's designed around fitment of an off-road dropbar.
All our frames usually fall into one of two catagories. (and sometimes... both)
rated frames and bikes are our expedition level models. The geometry has been optimised for long days in the saddle and expedition style riding. Typically they run rigid forks and are designed for adventure and all terrain use.
rated frames and bikes are intended more for singletrack and trail riding. (regular mountain biking) The geometry will be a little snappier. They are usually designed around fitment of a suspension fork. (the exception being the Mungo)
This doesn't mean that you can't rail the singletrack on a model that is designated "Overlander". Nor does it mean that you can't load up the bikepacking gear and hit the expedition tracks on a "Trail" model. We're just saying that each model is designed with "more" of the end use in mind. Where your Muru takes you... is totally up to you.
Also worth considering that either of our 29" models when optioned with 148/12 Boost rear spacing can also be very happily run with 27.5+ tyres up to 3.0" wide.
